This post stems from my original post regarding what a glyph ascent and descent is. Thanks to everyone who replied on this, you've been a great help.
I am now trying to figure out how to compute the height or size of a glyph. I was told that I could find the information about the size of a glyph (ascent/descent)from the font data, and that I should parse the font data. Does this mean actually looking at the font file under windows to get this information? I guess I'm not sure where to find the font data. If I have to parse the font, how do I do this?
